Class Description
Create color and pattern on silk and cotton fabric using natural dye extracts and natural materials! Discover how to use safe, non-toxic materials for an all-natural system of surface design. We will explore the techniques of block printing, stenciling, resist, discharge, and overdyeing, and how to combine these methods to produce beautiful art on fabric. Extracts of the natural dyes indigo, cochineal, lac, fustic, logwood, and others give a wide range of lovely colors. All levels welcome.


About the Instructor
LINDA HARTSHORN is known for unique dye work and lively use of color in her hand woven textiles. When she's not weaving or teaching classes at The Ink People Center for the Arts in Eureka, California, Linda can be found traveling nationwide to workshops with dyepots and looms. She is a recipient of the Victor Thomas Jacoby Award.

“In weaving I have discovered the threads that connect us to other weavers, to other places and other times. For me weaving is an essential part of being human. I try to express this in my work, which is influenced by many textile traditions but is still very much my own. I use natural fibers, a diversity of weave structures, and hand dyeing, including the extensive use of plant and mineral dyes, to create artistry in fiber.”
